LONGMONT — Longmont police have identified eight people suspected of involvement in vandalism at Mountain View Cemetery since early July.

Police say an arrest warrant has been issued for a 19-year-old man accused of criminal mischief causing more than $20,000 in damage and desecration of a venerated object.

Police Cmdr. Jeff Satur says one girl and five boys ages 14 to 17, plus a 21-year-old man, are suspected of having some role or knowledge of the damage to more than 150 headstones and a Civil War memorial statue in the cemetery.

They were expected to be referred to a restorative justice program that is an alternative to criminal charges for suspects who take responsibility for their actions. During the process, arrangements can be made to reimburse victims.
